    Organizations typically begin with a structure built around a relative handful of

    individuals with specific and separate responsibilities, and grow outward from there.

    In the early days, processes flow freely as

    the principals seek each other out to complete tasks or resolve issues. But as the workload

    increases, staff and technology are added to handle it. Such interactions become less frequent

    and more forced and the groups become increasingly less collaborative. Over time, they become

    independent silos unto themselves, and even end up investing in their own computing processes

    to optimize their efficiency.

  • Inside the silos,

    nothing about this seems illogical in thinking that "No one else does what we do, so why

    shouldn't we do our own thing?" But organizationally, it results in the proliferation of

    disconnected processes and infrastructure supports, and the propagation of a standalone

    culture that makes it nearly impossible to achieve efficacy and economy on an enterprise

    scale.

  • Traditional techniques would have you spend time and money to programmatically integrate

    the various systems so they can talk to one another. Unfortunately, many (especially legacy)

    applications aren't built to accommodate this or require some seriously heavy lifting to crack

    them open. However, every system includes some degree of metadata support and BPM can use

    the metadata to move processes forward.

    Business process

    tools are getting more attention as enterprise architects ponder strategies for bringing greater

    http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/metadata

  • agility to the enterprise. These tools allow business managers more direct control and

    communication around enterprise applications. To have informed discussions, enterprise

    architects and C-level executives should get clarity on the different nuances of business process

    management (BPM), business process as a service (BPaaS) and intelligent BPM (iBPM).

    It means you can start breaking your silos down (probably) without having to invest in any new

    technology.To do this, though, you have to turn your BPM on.

    It's a great way to maximize the total value of the software you already have in place --

    and your compliance people, perhaps

    first among others, will love you for it.

    Cloud versus in-house BPM :

    Enterprises need to consider the tradeoffs between cloud and in-house BPM regarding

    relative data protection and exit flexibility offered by the two models.

    A cloud-based service allows for relatively easier

    deployment and upgrades. These might be a good choice when the enterprise is already

    leveraging software-as-a-service applications for customer relationship management, enterprise

    resource planning or human resources.

    To conclude : Business process management -- an old approach aimed at making an

    organizations workflow more effective -- has been refashioned with the addition of cloud

    services and analytics. Intelligent BPM, as its known, is still firmly in the hype cycle,

  • according to Gartner. Thats not to say that organizations arent interested. In fact, iBPM is

    poised for widespread adoption.
